Making a beeline to Bee County

Beeville, Texas is the county seat of Bee County down in the Valley just south of Goliad. Here's the Goddess of Justice atop the courthouse, illuminated by the morning sun.

The Bee County Courthouse was built in 1912 in the Beaux Arts style. The courthouse sits in the town square alongside US59.

Here's a shot from the front steps looking up. The detail on the Corinthian columns and the pediment is amazing.

Here's a parting shot of the Goddess of Justice atop the clock. Unlike most Goddesses of Liberty, this one is not blindfolded.
